Waking up at midnightish from someone banging on the door yelling for me to move my tanker. Pulling back the curtain to see a truck on fire parked right in front of me. The truck to my left moved and I was able to pull out of my spot and away from the blaze.

Way more exciting than I wanted.

Fancy gap with fresh snow and an empty with supersingles is more than enough for me.

Never seen elk on Elk mountain... I had a buddy years ago.... He was pretty hairy, bet that is as close to seeing Bigfoot as I ever get.

The Majestic beauty of this country. I have seen some incredible and breath taking scenes, the snow covered plains of Wyoming, a red painted sunset in New Mexico, Los Angeles and New York City lit up at night, hands down the most incredible second thing I have seen on the road is the scenery, first and foremost is my wife and daughter. The most exciting part of my job is coming home and having my six year old jump in my arms, I want to freeze time in that moment.

Bigfoot or UFO, uh, no. However while running up I-64 toward Ohio today I spotted a small squirrel as it ran out on the road a ways up in front of me. He bounced joyfully as he frolicked across the road. Once he spotted me his movements became frantic to the left, stop, back to the right, stop, which way to go? Must chose quickly.......he chose wrong. Poor squirrel.

By exciting, do you mean “almost made me crap my pants”, or “wow, that was awesome”?

It scared me to death at that Iowa 80 TB! I think the price was around $22 for a dozen tacos, and I'm not even eating the shells, either.

Too high for me, so instead (being the hypocrite I am), I walked down to the showroom and bought some "cheap" accessories instead. Gotta have priorities!
